I Don't Know

I woke up this morning with my life in so much despair
I couldn't find my joy and my peace wasn't anywhere
So many things happening and going on in this world
It keeps me on my knees praying to my father above
Hatred on the rise, strange thing happening everywhere
You see things in life that you never seen before
Things that was long hid coming from behind closed doors
It makes me afraid because I don’t know what I’ll face next
I don’t know what’s coming my way or what to even expect

I don’t know what tomorrow may suddenly bring
Will it be sunshine or could it be a great change
I consider it a blessing just to see another day
Happiness fills my soul when sunshine comes my way
I wonder many times about the dreams in my head
Are they trying to tell me something, or am I misled
What is the answer to what’s going on in this world?
What happen to the joy, what happen to the love
I try to be uplifted in spirit wherever I may go
Will I ever find strength; Lord I just want to know

Maybe there is a reason why life is so tough
Why the hill is hard to climb and the mountains so rough
This is a pressing way just in life to survive
It’s a struggle to lay down at night and the next day to rise
I know where I come from but not where I am going
Life is always a lesson that’s too hard to learn
I can’t live the future by holding onto my past
I can’t shed tears without expecting to laugh
I don’t know if the life I live is only a test
Even I fail sometimes when I try to do my best
Since I don’t know much about these things
 And the future is further than my eyes can see
Taking one day at a time will always be enough for me.

    One day at a time...sometimes, that's all the heart needs to make it through somehow. A necessary writing.

    We don't know, yet we answer our own questions. Resigning to the unkown. Another day of gratitude towards tomorrow. Hoping we've learned enough to ease the sorrow. Hi Lillie, thanks for stopping by. Will have to read more. We seem to be some what cut from the same cloth. Peace. :)
